To do this activity you need: exactly 55 tally sticks (wooden craft sticks) and basic number cards 1 through 10. The child is to lay out the tally sticks to represent the numbers on the cards. If laid out correctly, the child will use all the tally sticks. Little Bean kept saying that there was no way he'd use such a large pile of sticks to complete the activity. It wasn't until he got to setting up nine and ten that he finally realized that indeed he would use all the sticks.

Right Start Math Activity
Believe it or not, we have finished Right Start Level A, and are starting in on Level B now. This little activity was in one of the first lessons of Level B as sort of a review for children moving from A to B. Little Bean had no problem completing this activity, and in fact it quite intrigued him, so I thought I'd post about it here.
